visiting the Archive is something you can do from bed.

You might run of reading material around you, but you will never run out reading material if you can access the Archive.

I note your 29th July, Steven, interesting, that is the day my life did another u-turn, that day one of only two doctors able to do it in NZ confirmed my belief that I had Aspergers Syndrome.

for 30 years I got medicated for a misdiagnoses, the meds forced me to stop working in 1989.

Currently I am trying to cope with all the damage the meds caused, 3 nights ago, an ambulance carted me off to hospital, a symptom of vertigo, severe pain, and exhaustion.

Tonight I am freezing, I use a medication to control my medication damaged thyroid which regulates my body temperature. I have lost a lot of weight, I have had lots of weight gaining food which stopped the weight loss, last week I had my official weigh in, I thought i had far overshot my goal, instead, I found I am barely up to normal weight.

the last year, I have been withdrawing from the community, I can barely leave home now.

18 hours from now, I might be being told I lost my doctor, if so, its near impossible to get another one, I am on a special scheme that gives me 100% free health care (small charge for meds. If I lose this docter, I also have to give up my VIP card that gives me free after hours doctors, they are there 24/7 without that VIP card, I pay $70, one third of my weekly income.

Life is hell for me currently, but the Archive will always be here for me, hopefully. Like Gerry, I got heaps to scan and upload, but I can not even stand upright, or even begin sorting boxes of texts, yesterday I carried a chair upstairs, almost callasped on the way up. Gerry is trying to save a life time of collecting onto the Archive, for posterity, I am trying to so too.

both me and Gerry are old, most young people today, never read books, they dont under the value of reading, that might explain why people with health issues are here, the older you get, the more health problems you have.

I find it almost possible to type now when it is cold.

Peter
